Changes to Banned Refrigerants in Saudi Arabia
For companies exporting cooling equipment such as freezers, air conditioners, compressors and refrigerators to Saudi Arabia, please be informed that the MoCI has extended a 20-year old decree banning Freon 11 and Freon 12 to now include Freon 22 and Freon 123 refrigerants as well. Spare parts needed for the maintenance and operation of older models of cooling and air conditioning appliances are exempted from this requirement. Intertek can help you make sure the your exports of such equipment meet these new requirements and you obtain the mandatory Certificate of Conformity for Customs clearance.
